About this product
- DescriptionOffers a surprising look at the world's most popular saint, showing how this beloved-but-often-mythologised character created a spiritual vision for the ages and may very well have rescued the Christian faith. Now in paperback, this new edition-called a contemporary classic-in-the-making by the National Catholic Reporter-includes study questions. Jon M Sweeney presents an intriguing portrait of St Francis of Assisi beyond the distorted myths and legends handed down over the centuries. Sweeney's portrait-called part biography, part devotional ...a rare combination of history and inspiration by Patheos blogger Jack Levinson-reveals a saint who was an unpredictable puzzle. Sweeney outlines Francis's revolutionary approach to friendship, people at the margins, poverty, spirituality, care (for people, creatures, and the natural world), and death. Sweeney also ties in the link between Pope Francis and his namesake.
- Author BiographyJon M. Sweeney is an independent scholar and one of religion's most respected writers. His work has been hailed by everyone from PBS and James Martin, S.J., to Fox News and Dan Savage. He is married, the father of three, and lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
